Call the Ghostbusters because glow in the dark ice cream is officially a thing. We’re all used to weird and wonderful ice cream flavours, but if foie gras, ghost pepper, and horse flesh (these are all real BTW) don’t float your boat, glow-in-the-dark ice cream could be your next tasty treat.
Heading to Ireland, Fantastic Flavours is based in Cork’s Youghal. Husband and wife team Miceál O’Hurley and Oksana Shadrina are known for their out-there ice creams and humanitarian efforts, but they’re really upping their game this time.
In the past, Fantastic Flavours has put its name to ice cream pasta and even got in touch with Tom Hanks to film a short for a pair of conjoined twins. Continuing their work to help those less fortunate, O’Hurley and Shadrina are putting their dairy skills to good use.
According to Joe.ie, glow-in-the-dark ice cream will have you ‘screaming’ for more. The creation is called Chernobyl Chunk and the proceeds will reportedly go to victims of 1986’s Chernobyl Disaster. Discussing the bold (and bright move), Miceál explained his brainwave:
“Following the international recognition of the devastation done to Ukraine during the Chernobyl Disaster as depicted in the HBO series Chernobyl my wife Oksana, who is originally from Ukraine, wanted to use the heightened awareness to benefit the victims of the radiation.”
